The default may be fine, but even after several days of using notebook
(which I am really excited to use btw!), I still have been unable to
my fingers. I realized now that this is due to several other programs
* Most terminal applications execute after enter (python, ipython, etc.)
* Programs that allow multiline input use shift-enter to do this. In
Skype behaves this way, as do many web-based forms.
I am not trying to argue that the default should be swapped, but
that it may not be completely intuitive... but given a way of locally
this, it becomes a non-issue. I will post back to verify that it works.
P.S. Sorry about the double post - I think it was because I had not
my +ipython alias properly so my first post did not go through. I
fixed the alias,
reposted (the message appeared immediately), but eventually my
